What I Offer
Though the core of my work is academic, my true mission is more personal. We all have different ways of seeing and understanding the world. In my experience, most of our educational institutions do not have the capacity to fully honor those differences. As a 1 on 1 tutor, I do! Here are a few ways in which working with me is different:
I seek to inspire in my students a love of learning and confidence in their ability to do so.
I seek to know and understand my students on a personal level and to tailor my instruction to each one’s unique personality, needs, and style.
If I have done my job correctly, I am less a dispensary of knowledge and more a catalyst for learning.
As students' confidence improves, they become invested in their education and feel empowered to advocate for themselves
Tutoring, at its best, is teamwork, and I see the student and I as collaborators. I give my students a safe space to experiment with their creativity so they can take the risks they need in order to grow. We celebrate the process as well as the achievement because student engagement is a success in itself. Sessions typically include:
The building of foundational skills behind each problem set
Identification of gaps from previous years and regular review of areas of struggle
The bridging of concepts: relating the current lesson to past and future lessons
Study Tips! Including, but not limited to, learning joyfully and playfully from one's mistakes.
